According to various media reports, Azerbaijan is set to open up a new embassy in Israel, after Israel and Azerbaijan have enjoyed 30 years of diplomatic relations.  This comes after Azerbaijan recently opened up a Tourism and Trade Office in the State of Israel, which many claimed was the first step towards Azerbaijan opening up an embassy.  Now, these predictions appear to be true.  

“The decision has already been made; the opening of the Azerbaijani embassy in Israel can only be delayed for technical reasons,” Arzu Naghiyev, an MP and member of the Azerbaijan-Israel parliamentary friendship group, told the Azerbaijani news site Pravda last week.

Following this development, Israel’s Ambassador to Azerbaijan George Deek tweeted on Twitter: “As our countries celebrate close to 30 years of deep friendship and cooperation, we stand with our Azerbaijani friends in their quest for a peaceful, prosperous future.”

Israel’s President Isaac Herzog had written a letter honoring 30 years of relations between Israel and Azerbaijan earlier this year, in which he invited President Ilham Aliyev to visit Israel and open an embassy.  “As we mark an important step in our relations, I hope to see us take an additional step, with the opening of the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Israel,” he wrote.

In an exclusive interview, Ayoob Kara, who served as Israel’s Communication, Cyber and Satellite Minister, stated: “I think the embassy must be because the relationship between the two states is at a high level. The embassy will help the relationship to improve around things that give benefit to both states. This embassy gives more power to the relationship and helps the economy of both countries.”

He added: “I am going to talk to incoming Prime Minister Netanyahu and discuss making Azerbaijan part of the Abraham Accords Agreement. It will be good for Israel and the entire Middle East. I think the new government will take more steps to continue the same steps to continue to the Abraham Accords Agreement. This will give more benefit to all the areas.  We now have six agreements with Islamic countries.   We also have unofficial agreements with Saudi Arabia, Mauritania, Qatar, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc.”

According to him, “Something stopped suddenly.  I negotiated with other states that we don’t want to talk about. I met with leadership from other Arab states. I want to surprise the world with another peace agreement. No one will believe what we are talking about now. The fact that Azerbaijan now has the embassy here showed that the Abraham Accords was the right step. The Abraham Accords do not have to be from the Arab areas.”

Kara declared: “This gives power to stop Iranian terrorism. I think the Iranians do not like Azerbaijan. It has been like that for many years. Azerbaijan values life. They don’t care about paradise. The life here and now is more important for the Azerbaijanis and they make policies about that. The Iranians care about the next world. But look at Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, etc. Wherever the Iranians are, it is in a bad situation.” 

“The relationship between Israel and other countries in the other region has become so strong that the Iranians are jealous of this,” Kara concluded. “They know that everyday life in Azerbaijan is better than it is in Iran.”
